    Monument Valley (1)

    We captured this photograph just before we drove down into Monument Valley a few years back.

    The valley is part of the Colorado Plateau, features sandstone buttes reaching as far as 1,000 ft, sets on the Arizona-Utah state line, and lies within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation Reservation.

    I recall countless western movies filmed in and around this area, and also have vivid memories of  Monument Valley as a kid while peering into my View-Master.

    If you haven’t been to Monument Valley, it definitely belongs on your bucket list.

    Bio: The Roaming Boomers is a luxury travel blog spotlighting experience, adventure, learning and exploration. David and Carol Porter, Michigan natives who retired to Scottsdale, started the project in 2008 after the market collapse took away almost half of the savings they’d carefully put together to be able to retire at age 50. The couple combined their years of entrepreneurship with a love of travel and set off to see if they could build success. The Roaming Boomers do occasionally accept free lodging, food and other gifts, but disclose that in their posts. They hope to build an audience of Baby Boomers who join them vicariously on their adventures. But they also hope to instill their love of travel so that the coming bubble of 79 million Boomers will join them.
